CT mall workers graduate as emergency responders
A special group of emergency responders graduated from a program in Milford Saturday that allows them to keep shoppers safe at the malls.
Twenty people became Certified Emergency Response Team (CERT) members and are ready to jump onto the front lines. The group, made of mostly mall employees, trained in CPR, firefighting and evacuation techniques for three months.
Connecticut?s emergency management deputy director says the training could also help with major disasters or emergencies like the recent shooting in an Omaha, Neb. mall.
The CERT course is free and available to anyone within the state.
